Hello and welcome. Thank you for requesting me. I'm sorry to hear that Kiwi and Skeeter are having some problems.
This is a very touchy situation and there is no clear cut correct way to handle it. I suspect that what is happening is that Kiwi is attempting to mate with Skeeter again, and she is not ready. This sort of thing happens often with parakeets. The male will try to court and pester the female. she will give him clues she's not interested, but he won't stop. Eventually, the female has enough and attacks the male. In some females, the hormone changes associated with breeding and egg-laying result in extreme aggression, so that is another possibility. When it happens, the most common scenario is pecking the male's head and even pecking the eyes out. This is not a situation to be ta***** *****ghtly - there have even been cases where a female kills the male.
The babies complicate things since Kiwi is still caring for them. It's a lot easier when both parents care for the babies. Kiwi would not be happy to be separated from them. However, that may be what you have to do to protect him. Given all the circumstances, I would separate the two. A tendency to attack like this is an inherited one, so Skeeter should not be bred again. We don't want to pass this trait on.
